Fun Weekend Activities to Celebrate Labor Day in Ohio

Michelle McQuade | September 3, 2021

Labor Day isn’t just a celebration of the country’s working-class heroes, it’s also the unofficial end of summer. With fall fast approaching, now is your last chance to enjoy all the great destinations and activities that Ohio has to offer. 

With so many options, however, choosing which attraction to visit on Labor Day weekend can be challenging. That’s why Cleveland realtor Michelle McQuade has come up with this handy list: 

Sports Complex

Visit a county fair

What’s a Labor Day weekend without a county fair? Here in Ohio, residents are spoilt for choice as there are many celebrations to choose from. There’s the Made in Ohio Arts & Craft Festival, where dozens of local artisans converge to sell handmade products. Foodies should also check out the Akron Pizza Fest, a three-day smorgasbord of the finest pizza pies the state has to offer. And for a colorful way to cap off your day, drop by the Stow Summer Sunset Blast to witness a dazzling fireworks display.

See the Cleveland National Air Show

The Cleveland National Air Show is a staple Labor Day weekend event. This year’s show features the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, who will paint the sky while speeding at 500 miles per hour in the air. The 50-minute show will feature intricate choreography and daredevil stunts that will surely amaze your family. What’s more, each ticket you buy will help fund the non-profit that organizes this beloved annual event.

Go on an epic food crawl

Ohio has many excellent restaurants, but since you have only one weekend to eat to your heart’s content, hit the food hall circuit instead. Among the best options are The Van Aken Market Hall and Sauce the City in Cleveland, along with Budd Dairy Food Hall in Columbus. These trendy dining spots house various restaurants and chefs under one roof, with each one specializing in a different cuisine. The diverse range of flavors will surely delight even the most discerning foodie.

Watch the home team

Cleveland residents are big-time baseball fans, and the entire city will be at the Progressive Field on September 6th to cheer on the Cleveland Indians when they face off against the Minnesota Twins. There will be plenty of sports drama, but the chance to see the home team triumph will be well worth the price of admission. 

Have a boozy good time

You don’t have to go to Germany or wait till October to enjoy Oktoberfest! Cleveland hosts its own version of this world-renowned event for two weekends in September, including Labor Day weekend. You can expect to see great live performances, colorful fireworks displays, and the iconic Glockenspiel. You can even get VIP tickets to gain access to exclusive events and free drinks.

No matter what your idea of a fun weekend might be, Ohio has a destination that will surely pique your interest. For more exciting things to do in the state, check out our blog.
